Benefit Concert For Cornell Dupree | 3/20/2011

Cornell Dupree (Uncle Funky) is an incredibly influential R&B guitarist who has recorded on literally over 2,500 albums. Originally from Texas, King Curtis discovered him and brought him to NY in 1962. It was there as guitarist for the King Curtis Band along with bassist Chuck Rainey that he got his chops backing such legends as Sam Cooke and Fats Domino, opening up for the Beatles on the '65 tour, sharing guitar duties with an unknown Jimmy Hendrix in '66, and doing some session work with a very young Duane Allman.
You can hear Dupree's signature guitar sound on the classic "Rainy Night in Georgia" or Aretha Franklin's "Respect"...or backing Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway, James Taylor, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Joe Cocker, just to name a few. He co-founded the 1970's instrumental funk band "Stuff", played in the original Saturday Night Live Band, toured with Bonnie Raitt, Joe Cocker, and the list goes on and on...
Cornell Dupree has been diagnosed with emphysema and will be undergoing a lung transplant. To help raise money for medical expenses we are putting on a Benefit Concert.  To purchases tickets and/or for more information, click here.

David Grisman Bluegrass Experience @ Boulder Theater

David Grisman is normally associated with the bluegrass wing of country music, but his music owes almost as much to jazz as it does to traditional American folk influences. Because he couldn't think of what to call his unique, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of acoustic bluegrass, folk, and jazz without leaning toward one idiom or another, he offhandedly decided to call it "dawg music" -- a name which, curiously enough, has stuck. A brilliant mandolinist, with roots deep in the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, Grisman's jazz sensibilities were strong enough to attract the admiration of the HCQ's Stephane Grappelli, who has toured and recorded with Grisman on occasion.
